Not often the first body part that springs to mind when planning your workouts, your back is most definitely key to strengthening and improving your posture. Plus, who doesn't want to flaunt a sculpted, sexy upper back?

All you need to do is follow these handy tips...

1) Do dumbbell shoulder shrugs. Standing with your feet apart and knees slightly bent, keep your arms at your sides with a dumbbell in each hand (palms facing inwards). Keeping your stomach tight, gently shrug your shoulder up to your ears but keep your elbows straight! Hold for 3 counts then repeat for 10 reps.

2) Targeting your lower back, The Cobra is a strengthening exercise like no other. Lying face down on the floor with your arms at your sides (palms DOWN), lift your chest and legs simultaneously off the ground - hold for 3 counts again and repeat for 10 reps! Keep your glutes and abs tight as you do these.

3) Do pullups. Avoid bending your hips or knees as you do these and try to extend your arms all the way down at the bottom of each movement; otherwise, you'll have cheated and only done HALF a pull-up...

4) If you suffer from lower back pain, stretch out the muscles around the lower spine by lying on your back and pulling your legs off the ground and towards your chest. Hold each stretch for half a minute and repeat 5 - 10 times as often as you can.

5) Exercise your back 3 times a week on alternating days for best results.

Today, Kylie Minogue's tiny tooshie ain't nothin' but a distant memory. In 2014, Nicki Minaj's Anaconda hit the club scene like Katrina vented its rage on poor ol' New Orleans and the year before that, Miley Cyrus went to show that even the kids were all about twerking...

Whatever the shape or size of your bum, YOU too can work those cheeks to perfection. Here's how to get your derriere tight and toned if your buns don't feel nothin' like steel...

1) If you're shy about your butt and can't help but feel there are improvements to be made - don't hide from your arse! Instead of covering it up with baggy shirts and loose tracksuit bottoms, invest in fitted leggings so you can watch the muscles working while you exercise. 

2) Go running. If you're afraid of stepping outdoors and wanna substitute a good old fashioned run for 45 minutes on the treadmill - forget it. Running on a treadmill doesn't use your arse or hamstrings, rendering it pointless for bubble butt building/maintenance. 

3) Do dumbbell squats! Standing with your feet apart and a dumbbell in each hand, squat down as if to sit down whilst squeezing your glutes as hard as you can on the way back up. Do 15-20 reps with a 1 minute rest period, then repeat for at least 2 more sets.

4) Take inspo from Leandro Carvalho's Brazilian Butt Lift Workout and do some Brazilian Butt Lift Explosive Lunges! Lunging forward with the left leg first, jump up (pushing both feet off of the ground) and switch legs in mid air to land into a right foot lunge. Continue whilst alternating sides.

5) And lastly...Say NO to McDonald's (fast food), cut down on sweetened drinks (sugary juices, fizzy drinks, sugar in tea etc.) and fill up on spinach, leafy greens, wholegrain cereal, fruit and lean meats!
